Personal profile

Research interests

I joined the University of Bristol in April 2024 as a Research Associate on the ERC/UKRI funded, Powerful Perpetrators project. I am also a PhD candidate at Cardiff University where my ESRC-funded research focuses on the spatial, temporal, and intimate dynamics of the British military’s justice system. My thesis is concerned with the institutional and individual responses to sexual violence and other ‘unacceptable behaviours’ committed by military personnel against their colleagues. My primary research interests lie at the intersections of feminist international relations, critical military studies, and political/legal geographies. My research is underpinned by a curiosity about how ideas of justice, violence, and accountability are navigated within powerful and trusted institutions.
